Joint Efforts

This week a lot of us over at DUST have been working very hard on the Ozbushfireappeal Etsy store. It is a store set up in response to the Victorian bushfires, and all proceeds go directly to the Red Cross.
Emma at FeliciaFairy has been absolutely tireless in her efforts, and founded the store in a flash. Many of us have helped to set up, run and promote the store. As I type it stands at 475 sales, a phenomenal effort for a store open for just 7 days. It just shows you how the human race really pulls together in times of desperation and need. Restores your faith in people.

My family and I were in Healesville for a wedding, and were evactuated. Pretty scary.


Moonmum made a great treasury featuring items from people who have donated to the store, and it made the front page! So exciting, seeing it featured my Classic Cutie Denim Rompers:
If you have a minute, please take a look at the store, and help out the poor folks who have nothing left in the wake of the fires.
